Gateway Cross Cup in St. Louis tonight

Today, some rather "big fish" of cyclocross racing are coming to our "little pond" of a state in the form of the Gateway Cross Cup in St. Louis - more specifically Herman Park in University City.   This race follows last weeks' professional opener, CrossVegas, as part of the "Cross after Dark" series of UCI races here in the states.  The elite men’s race begins at 9:00 PM and will be featuring current US national Champ Todd Wells, former national champs, Tim Johnson, Jonathan Page and Ryan Trebon in addition to last year’s North American Cyclocross Trophy series champ Jeremy Powers. 
Making the pond even more impressive are the Europeans who will also be mixing it up including Swiss national champ Christian Heule, Belgian U23 champ Ben Berden and Zoltan Tisza.   But making it more interesting for us here in COMO is that a couple of hometown boys: Missouri State Champion Josh Johnson and Hermann Cross winner Jon Schottler will also be throwing down in the UCI men's elite field.
The women’s elite race will see an equal display of international and national talent through the entries of US national champion Meredith Miller and her teammate, college national cyclocross champion Teal Stestson-Lee and Belgian champion Joyce Vanderbeken. 

The women's race begins at 7:30 PM.  All details can be found here:
